Markesan Police Warn of Phone Scam

(Markesan) Markesan Police recently reported receiving numerous calls from community members about a credit card scam. The scammer will state they are calling to advise the person that they either have found your credit card, they want to help you lower your interest rate or they are calling to tell you about suspicious activity on your account. Police says if you get that type of call it is best to hang up or let it go your voicemail. If you give out information about your credit cards or yourself the caller may be able to steal your identity or run up your credit card bill.
